Allyn Cioban enjoyed a very successful business career over the span of her corporate lifetime. Her professional experience includes diverse positions at the Executive and Director level in different industries. She knows well the demands and toll one’s work can take on their mind and body. Allyn is currently a Mind-Body Mentor/Wellness Coach, Yoga, Breathwork & Meditation Teacher, and a Teachers Trainer. Allyn is known as an expert teacher of safe postural alignment, breathwork, and mindfulness practices. She is registered with the Yoga Alliance as a 500+hour Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher and Continued Education Provider.
Moved to share a path of inner healing that worked wonders for herself, Allyn became a yoga teacher. With ten years of competitive gymnastics, fourteen years of group exercise instruction and personal training, ten years teaching yoga after well over 1,000 hours training in Vinyasa, SmartFLOW, Restorative, Yin, Naam yogas, and Yoga for Osteoporosis and Seniors, Allyn expertly teaches safe postural alignment, and healing pranayam, mudras, mantra, and divine spiritual wisdom.
Her personal practice, and therefore her teaching, which began quite physically focused with Vinyasa and Power Yoga, has evolved immensely over the years. Allyn studied under the guidance of Master Teacher Annie Carpenter, which honed her skills of teaching with precise alignment cues for safe, conscious, and compassionate asana practice. Under the tutelage of Spiritual Master and NAAM Yoga Founder, Dr. Joseph Michael Levry, Allyn has learned how to practice and beautifully weave into her teachings the more subtle and sacred yogic practices of NAAM. Allyn is a NAAM Level 1 Teacher Trainer, as well as an FYI Course Leader and The NAAM 5 Trainer. She is also a Harmonyum (energy healing) Practitioner and an IntenSati Leader.
Allyn also developed and has taught successfully for over eleven years a 12-session yoga course on consciousness, weight loss/management, body image, and eating issues called Your Essential Self (YES!). She believes wholeheartedly that through self-inquiry one is lead to self-awareness, which can change everything! Waking up to one's habitual patterns opens us up to self-acceptance, self-appreciation, and self-love. From there you have the ability to choose to love unconditionally – yourself and others.
Today Allyn is dedicated to teaching students of all ages and ability levels how to connect and grow spiritually, emotionally, and physically. She leads yoga and divine spiritual wisdom workshops, trainings, retreats, womens' circles, and private sessions globally for individuals, groups, companies, and schools. She is dedicated to guiding her clients and students through the personal transformation process in person and via webinars; privately and in group setting; at companies, studios, and exotic retreat locations.
